No. 583.]

Sir: Referring to my dispatch No. 574, of the 30th ultimo, with which I inclosed a bill amending the “socialist law,” then pending before the Reichstag, I have now the honor to inform you that the validity of the original law has been prolonged for a period of two years, to expire September 30, 1890, the Reichstag declining to adopt any of the amendments proposed by the Government.

I have, etc.,

Geo. H. Pendleton.
